HISTORICAL SKETCH 

The Massachusetts Missionary Society was organized on May 29, 1799, 
in Boston. There were thirty-eight charter members, mainly followers of the 
theology of Samuel Hopkins. They were "impelled by a deep commiseration for 
the unhappy state of those who were perishing for lack of those precious means of 
salvation which we enjoy." Their intention was to spread "the knowledge of the 
glorious Gospel of Christ among the poor Heathens and in those remote parts of 
our country in which the inhabitants had not enjoyed the benefits of a Christian 
ministry and Christian ordinances," i.e., outside Massachusetts. Nathaniel 
Emmons, fifty-four years pastor at Franklin, was the first president. The Society 
was. incorporated in 1808. 

Origin of Massachusetts Home Missionary Society 

In 1827 the Massachusetts Missionary Society and the Domestic Missionary 
Society of Massachusetts Proper (which had come into being in 1818 to "see everj 
parish in the State well supplied with a faithful Minister of Christ"), were united 
under the name of the Massachusetts Missionary Society. This meant that while 
the Domestic Missionary Society of Massachusetts Proper lost its name, the 
Massachusetts Missionary Society was henceforth to work almost exclusively in 
Massachusetts. 

The Massachusetts Missionary Society became the Massachusetts "Home" 
Missionary Society in 1844. This was simply to emphasize that the work of the 
Society had become exclusively for America and for the Massachusetts part of 
America. 



Origin of Massachusetts Conference 

The General Association of Massachusetts came into being in 1802. This 
ultimately became the Massachusetts Congregational Conference. The Confer- 
ence then merged with the Massachusetts Home Missionary Society in 1927, to 
become the Massachusetts Congregational Conference and Missionary Society. 
This was the result of twenty-seven years' agitation, accelerated by a recommen- 
dation of the National Council in 1907. The charter of the Massachusetts Home 
Missionary Society was used as the basis for the union of the two organizations. 
In 1953 the name wa.=i changed to Massachusetts Congregational Christian Con- 
ference. In 1966 the name was changed again to the Massachusetts Conference 
of the United Chiu-ch of Christ. The Conference assumes responsibility forTall 
Congregational missionary work done in Massachusetts. It supports a staff of 
fifteen persons who give ministerial and executive leadership to a broad program 
of work designed to help the churches, to develop the fellowship of the ministers 
and churches, and to cultivate practical support for denominational and inter- 
denominational projects and programs.

MINUTES OF THE 171st RECESSED ANNUAL MEETING 

of the 

MASSACHUSETTS CONFERENCE OF THE UNITED 

CHURCH OF CHRIST 

October 24, 1970 

Ayer School Auditorium Ayer, Massachusetts 

The 171st Recessed Annual Meeting of the Massachusetts Conference of the 
United Church of Christ met on Saturday, October 24, 1970 in the Ayer School 
Auditorium, Ayer, Massachusetts. The meeting was called to order by the Moder- 
ator, Rev. Harold R. Fray, Jr. at 9:45 A. M. Appreciation was expressed to the 
host church, the Federated Church of Ayer and the Rev. James Whyte, host 
minister, and to the Superintendent of Schools of Ayer, Dr. Charles Hand for 
the hospitality and use of facilities. The Moderator announced that Mr. Loomis 
Patrick would serve as Parliamentarian for the meeting. The Business Commit- 
tee, under the chairmanship of Dr. Wade Kornegay^ was in session and all new 
business to be brought before the meeting must be submitted to that committee 
for proper referral. Rev. Justin Hartman, Acton Center, would serve as Head 
Teller and Rev. David Eaton, Plymouth, as chairman of the Credentials Com- 
mittee. 

The first action of business was as follows: it was moved and 

VOTED: That all lay delegates chosen for this Recessed 171st Annual Meeting, 
together with pastors serving parishes or extra parochial tasks within the Com- 
monwealth and holding standing in an association in this Conference and Chris- 
tian Education Directors holding United Church of Christ certification, shall 
have voting rights at this meeting whether or not they were present at the 
meeting in June 1970. 

It was moved and 

VOTED: That the agenda be adopted as printed with the following amendment, 
that the discussion and action on the By-Laws be considered at 1:45 P.M. 

The Moderator then presented the Minister and President, Rev. Avery D. Post, 
who led the opening worship. 

Immediately following the devotional period, Mr. Post gave a stirring, provoc- 
ative address calling the members of the Conference "to be people of God, to 
be free, to be open, trusting as people are called and intended to be by God." 
He stated two findings which have crystalized in his thinking as he has become 
acquainted with our churches and Conference in the past few months: (1) That 
our congregations with their lay and professional leadership are missionary 
instruments spread across the state; (2) That the Conference has two roles: 
a) To be a mission instrument, a gathered, spiritual constituency, seeking to 
participate in the ministry of Christ in the world, and b) To be an empowering, 
equipping agency to its churches. He outlined a new look at staff assignments 
which would include 5 Area Ministers, 3 Consultants to churches and ministers

and 4 general administrative posts. In conclusion he recognized the problems 
and tension we face in solving our financial and budget responsibilities but called 
us to accept ourselves as the "tense people of God" with the courage and abilities 
to face the possibilities and responsibilities that are ours. 

The Moderator called upon Mr. Carleton Finch, Chairman of the Board of 
Directors, to speak to the 1970 O.C.W.M. shortage. He explained the recommen- 
dation of the Board as to how the deficit could be absorbed for this year by 
adjusting the amount the Conference would retain from O.C.W.M. and taking 
money from unrestricted funds for the current budget and by adjusting current 
grants. After considerable discussion and questioning, it was moved and 

VOTED: That the O.C.W.M. retention for 1970 be adjusted to reflect a fair 
share of the apparent drop in basic support, the exact amount to be determined 
by the Board of Directors at the end of the fiscal year, but to be not less than 
$200,000 nor more than $240,000, provided that any use of capital in excess of 
that available be avoided by adjusting grants in Massachusetts. 

The next item of business was consideration of the budget for 1971. Ihere 
was immediate and prolonged discussion concerning the need for a continued 
Minister of Education to serve the churches in Christian Education and youth 
work. We were reminded of the need for an ecumenical approach, that we should 
be flexible enough to accept a new style of working, that Conference committees 
needed to evaluate their Avork and relationship to staff, etc. 

It was moved and seconded: 

Be it resolved that the Board of Directors find funds to maintain the 
position of Church and Education. 

After discussion the following amendment was moved as an addition at the end 
of the motion: 

or through an ecumenical approach for funds and personnel to create 
a new position with specific responsibility for youth ministry in year- 
round camps, conferences, retreats and study tours. 

There was no second called for but discussion proceeded under the assumption 
that it was seconded. 

It was arranged that those interested in the matter caucus with Avery Post 
during lunch. 

At 12:20 P. M. the Moderator adjourned the meeting for lunch. 

Luncheon was served in the school cafeteria of three schools in the area. 

At 1:45 P.M., the Moderator called the meeting to order again and presented 
Mr. Clayton Ford, chairman of the By-Laws Committee to give the report of his 
committee. Printed copies of the By-Laws with changes were attached to the 
agenda for the consideration of the delegates. Lengthy discussion ensued regard- 
ing many of the suggested changes and new changes were offered. The following 
actions were taken by the meeting as a committee of the Avhole: 

Regarding the ages of delegates and in keeping with a recent action of the 
General Synod, it was moved and 



42 Minutes 1971 

VOTED: That it be recommended that when there are four delegates including 
the minister and Christian education staff from any church that at least one 
delegate shall be under 30 years of age; if more than four delegates, that 20% 
of the delegation shall be under 30 years of age. (To be included in Article V) 

It was moved and 

VOTED: That in Article V, 1. a. (1) the following words be added after the word 
"pleasure" — of whom it is suggested that one shall be a layman and one a lay 
woman. (335 — yes; 262 — no) 

Discussion moved to Article VII since this concerns the Board of Directors and 
its powers. It was recommended but no formal action was taken that the By-Laws 
Committee include in the wording of Article VII 1. a. (1) the following: ". . . one 
third lay women oj whom at least 20% shall be under 30 years of age as near- 
ly as may be." 

In Article IX, it was agreed that the By-Laws Committee would include in 
1. following the word "meeting", and if elected on an area basis such church 
membership must be in that area. Also there will be a paragraph :^4 concerning 
automatic resignation. This will be prepared for consideration at a later date. 

The committee of the whole, after further discussion at this time, moved and 

VOTED: That the Committee on By-Laws should continue its work of revision 
in light of the above recommendations and report to the Board of Directors for 
their action and recommendation to the June, 1971 Annual Meeting. 

The Moderator, Mr. Fray, then assumed the gavel and the Conference heard 
the report of the Chairman of the Committee on By-Laws. Mr. Ford reported 
for the Committee of the whole that the By-Laws had been amended in a variety 
of ways and the Committee on By-Laws will report to the Board of Directors 
for their action at the June meeting, 1971. 

There was considerable discussion of an attempt to make this consideration 
of the changes of the By-LaAvs a first reading but when brought to a vote, it was 
defeated. 

It was moved and 

VOTED: That we table further discussion of the By-Laws and decision on the 
budget until January 9, 1971. (364 — yes; 255 — no) 

There was an immediate motion for reconsideration. It was moved and 

VOTED: That the vote regarding the By-Laws and budget be reconsidered. 

(318 - yes; 238 - no) 

These motions were then considered separately. 

It was moved and 
VOTED: That we table further discussion of the By-Laws. 

It was moved and 
VOTED: That we table action on the budget. (379 — yes; 198 — no) 



1971 Minutes 



It was moved and 



VOTED: That after consideration of other items of business properly to come 
before this meeting that we recess until January 9, 1971 at which time the By- 
Laws and budget for 1971 will be discussed. 

It was moved and 

VOTED: That a detailed 1971 budget of the various items coming before the 
delegates to the January 9, 1971 meeting be mailed to these delegates by Christmas. 

Upon recommendation of the Board of Directors, it was moved and 

VOTED: That Fellowship Dues be set at $1.50 (per member) for 1971. 
and, it was moved and 

VOTED: That the O.C.W.M. retention for 1971 be set at 20% of basic support. 
The meeting adjourned at 4:45 P. M.

MINUTES OF THE 171st RECESSED ANNUAL MEETING 

of the 

MASSACHUSETTS CONFERENCE OF THE UNITED 

CHURCH OF CHRIST 

January 9, 1971 

Ayer School Auditorium Ayer, Massachusetts 

The 171st Recessed Annual Meeting of the Massachusetts Conference of the 
United Church of Christ met on Saturday, January 9, 1971 in the Ayer School 
Auditorium, Ayer, Massachusetts. The meeting was called to order by the Moder- 
ator, Rev. Harold R. Fray, Jr. at 9:45 a. m. 

It was moved and 

VOTED: That all lay delegates chosen for this Recessed 171st Annual Meeting, 
together with pastors serving parishes or extra parochial tasks within the Com- 
monwealth and holding standing in an association in this conference and Christian 
education directors holding United Church of Christ certification, shall have 
voting rights at this meeting whether or not they Avere present at the meeting in 
June or October 1970. 

The Moderator announced that any questions concerning credentials should 
be referred to the Credentials Committee, the Rev. Eric Bascom, Chairman. 

Dr. Wade Kornegay, Chairman of the Business Committee, was asked to review 
the proposed Ground Rules as printed and mailed to the delegates. Following a 
reading of these proposed rules, it was moved and 

VOTED: To adopt the Ground Rules as proposed by the Business Committee. 

It was then moved and 

VOTED: That the agenda as printed and submitted to the delegates be adopted. 

The Moderator then presented Mrs. James Smith and Mrs. Stuart Sinclair who 
led the assembly in worship. 

The Moderator called attention to a correction of the minutes of the October 
24, 1970 Recessed Meeting. It was noted as being revealed by the tape of the 
proceedings. The correction follows: 

In the place of "There was no action taken and at 12:20 P. M. the Moderator 
adjourned the meeting for lunch." Insert: 

"It was moved and seconded:

position of Church and Education 

After discussion the following amendment was moved as an addition at the end

1971 Minutes 45 

There was no second called for but discussion proceeded under the assumption 
that it was seconded. 

It was arranged that those interested in the matter caucus with Avery Post 
during lunch. 

At 12:20 p. m. the Moderator adjourned the meeting for lunch." 

(This above correction has been made in the minutes printed in the year book.) 

Then the Moderator noted that the order of business called for a presentation 
and discussion of the budget and that the motion in the correction is before the 
meeting; namely: "Be it RESOLVED that the Board of Directors find funds to 
maintain the position of Church and Education." The Rev. Paul Clayton was 
called upon to speak to the motion on behalf of the Board of Directors. It was 
stated that the intention of the motion is met in the 1971 budget in that the 
budget includes an item for a Consultant in Education. 

The motion was VOTED. 

The Moderator then explained that even though the Board of Directors has 
power in the By-Laws to adoj^t a budget, the Board wishes to set the budget be- 
fore the Annual Meeting for adoption. It was noted that this is the first time 
such a procedure has been followed. 

The Moderator then explained that the Board of Directors had complied with 
the wishes of the previous meeting and was ready to present a budget that met 
the conditions which had been spelled out at that previous meeting on October 
24, 1970. Mr. Roy Coombs, Chairman of the Finance Committee of the Board of 
Directors was asked to present the budget. Mr. Coombs explained the process 
which the Board and Staff had used to firm up the budget and how it had been 
prepared in the final form now presented to the delegates. After some explana- 
tory comments, Mr. Coombs moved and it was seconded: 

That the 1971 budget as printed and distributed be adopted. 

Discussions and questions regarding the budget were welcomed. Prior to the 
discussion the Moderator pointed out that any suggested additions to the pay- 
ments would have to have accompanying suggestions as to the sources of addi- 
tional funds to meet the item. 

A question was raised on the grant to the B.E.C. through the Mass. Council 
of Churches and its relation to the .fl, 000,000 grant of the Conference. It was 
explained that this is a prior commitment for five years for the basic administra- 
tive costs of the B.E.C. whereas the million dollar grant is for program devel- 
opment. 

The item for the Boston Industrial Mission was questioned and it was moved 
and seconded: 

That the grant to the Boston Industrial Mission be removed from the list and 
transferred to grant contingencies. 

After discussion the motion was defeated. 

A question was raised on the committee budgets and whether any monies were 
available for worship cultivation in the section of "other committees." The Rev. 
George Thomas, now Assistant to the Minister and President for Program Devel- 
opment, explained the new plan for committee work and the need to work under 
a common budget, determining priorities together. It was pointed out that funds 
for worship cultivation would have to be found through the current discussions 
being carried on among committee chairmen and through the general contin- 
gencies of the overall budget.

(Receives some room & board) 



The matter of a breakdown of Executive salaries was raised. After some 
cussion, the following detailed annual salary schedule was read: 

Avery Post $24,600. 

Emil Beck 16,000. 

George Thomas 16,000. 

Darrell Holland 13,475. 

Allen Hackett 14,500. 

James Lancaster 14,500. 

Karl Phillippi 14,500. 

Donald Simpson 14,500. 

Pierre Vuilleumier 11,300. 

(New S.E. Area Minister) 14,250. 

Lillian Gregory 12,475. 

(New Consultant in Educ.) 13,500. 

Paul Shanabrook 14,500. 

Dexter Rice 10,300. (Receives rent-free home) 

It was pointed out by a delegate that we must understand that staff salaries 
include the housing allowance. 

Mrs. Erna Ballantine moved the previous question as presented by Mr. Coombs 
of the Board of Directors. It was then 

VOTED: That the 1971 budget as printed and distributed be adopted. 

The matter of By-Laws revision came next on the agenda. The Moderator first 
reviewed for the delegates the manner in which By-Law changes can be made 
and the power that rests with the delegates. Mr. Clayton Ford, Chairman of the 
By-Laws Committee, was asked to present a report of the work of that commit- 
tee. Mr. Ford, acting for the committee, proposed the By-Law amendments pre- 
sented in October plus the amendments presented before this meeting. This 
move was made to expedite the business of this meeting and to give the Board 
of Directors more time to review the By-Laws. It meant that the proposed changes 
in By-Laws could now be voted on at the May 1971 meeting. Mr. Carleton Finch, 
Chairman of the Board of Directors, presented a position paper of the Board 
regarding the proposed changes in By-Laws and carefully explained where the 
Board agrees or disagrees with the By-Laws Committee, and that they would be 
making some alternative proposals for the meeting in May. The Moderator in- 
vited other questions and proposals. There was no further action or discussion 
on By-Laws at this time. 

The Moderator then proceeded with the printed agenda and called for con- 
sideration of brief reports on assignments of previous Annual Meetings and 
Resolutions not thus far acted upon. 

The Rev. Emil Beck, Vice President for Administration and Secretary, moved 
and it was 

VOTED: That we receive the Brief Reports as printed and mailed to the dele- 
gates with the exception of paragraphs 6, 8, 9 and 10, all of which call for other 
action and reporting at this meeting. 

The Rev. Alfred Winham, Chairman of the Committee on Church and Com- 
munity offered the Resolution on Welfare. After discussion, it was moved and 

VOTED: That the following Resolution on Welfare be approved: 

"God Almighty, in his holy and wise providence, hath so disposed of the con- 
dition of mankind, as in all times some must be rich and some poor, some high

and eminent in power and dignities, others mean and in subjection." As members 
of the United Church of Christ we are direct inheritors of the tradition out of 
which John Winthrop wrote. Indeed some of us worship in pews and sanctu- 
aries where Winthrop's conteinporaries heard, debated and accepted that very 
theology. 

Our own religious insights have in the intervening years moved away from such 
harsh views of predestination, but a little honest reflection will suggest that in 
matters of welfare grants and the handling of convicts and other groups our 
attitudes are unfortunately very close to those of Winthrop. 

Inmates, mental patients, orphans, adult charity wards, the indigent ill and 
injured in public hospitals, persons on public welfare, the indigent physically 
handicapped, alcoholics, drug addicts and to a lesser degree inner city public 
school children, all offend against abstract notions of justice which we like to 
believe we hold. We all feel that there "should not be" any poor and pariah 
classes, and it offends our sensibilities to have their existence affirmed in an 
undeniable way. Thus we label them in an offensive way and deny them their 
humanity, calling them "dirty, lazy, stupid, crazy bums, beggars, lunatics and 
criminals," and then we act toward them in ways which make it difficult to 
escape from the consequences of our labeling. 

In view of our historical misunderstanding of poverty and the resulting in- 
justices to the poor, we endorse in principle the Massachusetts Council of Church- 
es' statement of November 1969 which, despite the stringency of its tone and 
the debatable assertions in its resolutions is a valuable challenge to prevailing 
beliefs concerning the poor. 

Furthermore, be it RESOLVED that: 

1. The Conference urges all of its churches to study and examine the 
problems of working and non-working poor. Only by being alert to 
genuine issues may the conscientious voter distinguish between the 
various siren songs of those politicians who use welfare for spurious 
political ends. 

2. The Conference finds hope in the direction of the new Federal Welfare 
legislation that establishes welfare as a right rather than a handout 
and that it recognizes the need to supplement the working poor as 
well as to guarantee an annual wage. 

3. In considering Guaranteed Annual Income, we believe Christians should 
be concerned with guaranteed adequate income. 

4. We recognize as fallacious the notion that all assisted persons are able 
to work; moreover, we lament job-training for the approximately 10% 
employable without assurance of jobs for which they are trained. 

5. We conceive the role of homemaker as a full-time responsibility for 
those who choose to be homemakers and abhor any program to force 
mothers of young children from the home. 

6. The welfare recipient is entitled to dignity without humiliation or 
harassment. People on welfare have the same Constitutional rights as 
other citizens and any practices inconsistent with these rights should 
be abolished. 

It was moved and 
VOTED: To instruct the Committee on Church and Community to bring an up- 
dated Resolution on Crime and Human Rights to the next Annual Meeting in 
May 1971. 



48 Minutes 1971 

The Committee on Church and Community announced that it would withdraw 
its Resolution on U. S. Military Involvement in order to prepare another state- 
ment for the next Annual Meeting in May 1971. There was no contention of 
this proposal and therefore no further action at this time. 

The Business Committee, at this point, recommended that the following matters 
be added to the agenda: 

1. That the resolution from the Wilmington Congregational Church on Spiritu- 
al Life be presented for action at this meeting; 

2. That a resolution expressing appreciation to the Rev. Paul Shanabrook for 
his service to the Conference be presented for action at this meeting; 

3. That the delegates fiom the First Congregational Church, Amherst, be 
permitted to make an announcement concerning the observance of the birth date 
of the late Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. 

The Moderator then called on Mrs. Stuart Sinclair, a member of the Com- 
mittee on Church and Mission, to present a Resolution in Appreciation of the Rev. 
Paul Shanabrook. It was moved and 

VOTED, unanimously: 

WHEREAS: Paul Shanabrook will conclude his service to the Massachusetts 
Conference of the United Church of Christ in April, and: 

WHEREAS: He has served faithfully and with integrity in the difficult task 
of enabling the churches of the Conference to advance in recognition and 
support of the Mission of the church, and: 

WHEREAS: He has demonstrated by example, tough minded thought, and 
effective articulation the unity of that mission, and: 

WHEREAS: He has helped many churches, ministers, and lay leaders to think 
through and implement priorities for giving that have given creative, vigorous, 
and far-sighted form to mission support, and: 

WHEREAS: He has provided rich resources of leadership and support to the 
Church and Mission Committee which have contributed to what success in 
service has resulted from it, and: 

WHEREAS: He possesses gifts of theological profimdity, persuasive commu- 
nication, sensitivity to the feelings and needs of people, consciousness of the 
world's needs, and practical ability to relate those gifts in vital service to the 
Church of Christ. 

Therefore be it RESOLVED: That this Recessed Annual Meeting of the Massa- 
chusetts Conference of the United Church of Christ express its appreciation

church as the Holy Spirit shall guide him, and: 

Be it Further RESOLVED: That it recommend him without reservation to his 
next field of service, and: 

Be it Further RESOLVED: That this resolution be prepared in an appropriate 
manner and presented to him as a token of the love and gratitude of the 
Churches and leaders of the Massachusetts Conference of the United Church 
of Christ. 



1971 Minutes 49 

A standing ovation was then accorded the Rev. Mr. Shanabrook. 

Mr. Miller, of the First Church, Amherst, called upon our churches to give 
recognition of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. during the week of January 
10-17, 1971. 

Mr. Phillip Andrews of the Wilmington Congregational Church, then read 
that church's resolution on Spiritual Life in the Conference. Following discussion, 
it was moved and 

VOTED: That this resolution be tabled. 

The Business Committee offered a Resolution on Hospitality. It was moved and 

VOTED: Whereas we have received outstanding hospitality in Ayer for these 
two recessed meetings, we hereby express appreciation for the services of the Ayer 
School systems and Superintendent Charles Hand and his personnel's grand co- 
operation, and for the services of the Federated Church of Ayer, the Acton Church 
and other churches for providing the help of ministers and laity in aiding us. 

At this point, the Rev. Clyde Miller, from the floor, called for a closing word 
from the Minister and President, Rev. Avery D. Post. Mr. Post spoke with appre- 
ciation of the power that had been at work in this meeting. He said that even 
as the next General Synod of the United Church of Christ will be an issue-cen- 
tered assembly, so must our Conference and our churches be issue-centered and 
he suggested that some of the issues are these: soul trouble in America, contin- 
ued oppression of minorities, war and support of the war by unchallenged power 
in our society, and hunger. We must move ahead to do the work of the Confer- 
ence: to be mission-centered. He spoke with appreciation of the fine preaching 
by the leaders of worship. Mr. Post concluded, "The Christ who beckons is the 
Christ who is glorified and risen and makes of us a people of hope who join him 
in his victory. Praise the Lord. Amen." 

Mr. Beck gave instructions regarding the serving of lunch. 

The Moderator, the Rev. Harold R. Fray, Jr., then led the delegates and guests 
in a closing prayer. 
The meeting adjourned at 12:00 noon.

mittees of the Conference. Members of the Committee will be available until 5:00 
P. M. to receive any additional suggestions. 

Reports of Committees, Councils and Executive Staff were distributed in ad- 
vance of the meeting. Report of the Chairman of the Board of Directors follows 
these minutes. 

The Treasurer, Mr. Ralpli F. Tuller, presented a statement and interpreted it. 

It was moved and 

VOTED: That the Rev. David Stowe, the Rev. Sheldon Mackey, the Rev. Don 
Bundy, and the Rev. Kenneth Smith be made honorary members of the Confer- 
ence at this Annual Meeting. 

Miss Margaret Stoddard, Church and Education Committee, made a plea for 
registrations for the several camps and conferences to be held this summer. 

Following lunch, the Moderator introduced the Rev. Avery D. Post, Minister and 
President of the Massachusetts Conference of the United Church of Christ. Mr. 
Post reviewed the current work of the Conference, and in the conclusion of his 
remarks introduced and paid tribute to the Rev. Allen Hackett who will be 
retiring as minister in the Metropolitan Boston Area on September first. He 
also introduced the Rev. Pierre Vuilleumier who has begun new duties as Di- 
rector of Craigville Conference Center after completing ten years of service as 
minister in the Southeast Area. Mr. Post greeted and welcomed in behalf of the 
Conference the Rev. Paul Sinn, newly elected minister in the Southeast Area. 

The Moderator introduced Mr. Clayton Ford, Chairman of the By-Laws Com- 
mittee, and the Rev. William Hulteen, representing the Board of Directors. By- 
Laws Committee members, in addition to Mr. Ford, are the Rev. Edmund Nutting, 
the Rev. Ross Cannon, Attorney James Morefield and Attorney Kleber Campbell. 
Mr. Ford reminded the delegates that the By-Laws Committee had been appointed 
by the Board of Directors last year. The Recessed Meeting at Ayer, on January 9, 
1971, approved the Proposal for Revision of the By-Laws. The Board of Directors 
has some alternate choices on some articles, and these amendments will be 
brought to this Meeting. The differences are in the matter of strength and the 
style of operation. Both the Board and the By-Laws Committee agree that the 
delegates should have the opportunity to decide which ways the Conference should 
go, and both have agreed on the procedure to be used this afternoon. Mr. Hulteen 
expressed the appreciation of the Board of Directors for the extensive work which 
the By-Laws Committee has done. Mr. Hulteen then proceeded to go through the 
Proposal for Revision, offering the Board's alternatives at the appropriate places. 

It was moved and 

VOTED: That Articles I, II, and III of the Proposal for Revision be eliminated 
from consideration. 

It was moved and 

VOTED: That Article IV, Section 2. b. of the Proposal for Revision be amended 
to read: "b. A special meeting of the Conference shall be convened by the Board

man of the Board of Directors of a written petition stating the proposed purposes, 
and signed by not less than one hundred persons who shall be voting members 
of the Conference as defined and who shall represent at least fifty Churches, 
within sixty days of the receipt of such petition unless an already scheduled 
meeting of the Conference will be held within ninety days." 

It was moved and 

VOTED: That Article IV, Section 5, of the Proposal for Revision be amended 
to read: "5. Quorum. At all meetings of the Conference a quorinn shall consist 
of 200 voting members." Yes, 347; No, 291. 

A motion to reconsider the vote on Article IV, Section 2. b. lost. At this point 
there seemed to be confusion among the delegates about procedures. Mr. Loomis 
Patrick, Parliamentarian, carefully outlined the methods being used to amend 
the Proposal for Revision of the By-Laws. It was moved and 

VOTED: That Article VI, Section 6, of the Proposal for Revision be amended 
to read: "6. Retirement Age. The mandatory retirement date for any Executive 
Officer, staff member or employee shall be the Annual Meeting following his 
attaining age 65. However, the Board of Directors may temporarily employ, from 
time to time, any persons beyond age 65 when such temporary employment is 
deemed to be in the best interest of the Conference." 

An amendment to Article VII, Section .8, of the Proposal for Revision, to allow 
the Board of Directors to administer and dispose of the property of the Confer- 
ence and manage all of its business and affairs, except as otherwise provided in 
the Charter of the Conference or the By-Laws was defeated. Yes, 310; No, 371. 

It was moved and 

VOTED: That Article XVII, Section 1, of the Proposal for Revision, be amended 
to read: "1. These By-Laws, except Articles II and III, may be amended at any 
Annual Meeting, or other meeting, of the Conference by a two-thirds vote, pro- 
vided the amendment was proposd at a previous Conference Meeting or is rec- 
ommended by the Board of Directors. The Board must notify the Churches and 
delegates of By-Laws amendments which it recommends at least 45 days prior to 
the Conference Meeting at which these will be considered." 

Dr. Wade Kornegay, Chairman of the Business Committee, reported that it had 
received 3 resolutions and was recommending that 2 of them come to the floor 
of the Meeting. He presented several alternatives for rearranging the time sched- 
ule so that the business of the Meeting might be finished by late Saturday after- 
noon. Several motions offering time changes and allotments in the adopted Agenda 
were presented and lost. 

Mrs. Paul Barnes reported that no new nominations had come to the Church 
and Leadership Committee for Officers, Board and Committee members. Nomina- 
tions were called for from the floor. There being none, it was moved and 

VOTED: That nominations be closed. 

Following dinner, Mr. Carleton Finch, Chairman of the Board of Directors, 
introduced Mr. J. Harold Lemay, Mayor of Fitchburg; Mr. James Howard, Guar- 
antee Bank and Trust Company; Mr. William Flynn, Administrative Aid to 
Representative Robert Drinan; and Joyce Huff, Secretary of the Housing Rehabili- 
tation Committee. The theme for the evening was "The Mission to People,

Father Drinan received a standing ovation following his introduction. His topic 
was "Our Most Resistant Social Problems." At the close of the program, the 
Moderator expressed his appreciation to Father Drinan and to the panelists. Mr. 
Post offered the closing prayer. 



SATURDAY, MAY 8 

The Moderator called the meeting to order at 9:40 A. M. and called on the 
Rev. Frederick Lyon to offer prayer. 

A motion was made and seconded to divide the question of the By-Laws. An

RESOLUTION ON CRIME AND HUMAN RIGHTS 

We, gathered Christians meeting in the 172nd Annual Meeting of the Massa- 
chusetts Conference of the United Church of Christ, acknowledge our obligation 
to do the will of Christ. We confess Him as Lord, and we believe His Lordship 
requires us to seek and do justice, to defend the cause of the oppressed. We 
affirm His teaching that our actions toward the very least of brethren are as unto 
Him. 

With other citizens of our troubled nation we share concern about increasing 
crime and the dangers to community life in rampant lawlessness. Yet we note 
that action which does not address the conditions that breed crime can be serious- 
ly misdirected. Indeed, some actions purported to restore law and order may be 
an offense against civil liberties we all properly cherish. The climate of fear in 
our nation has already led to federal legislation that sets itself against historic 
safeguards of basic human rights and opens the door to severe repression. With 
deep concern we note acts of our government within the past year that are con- 
trary to the principles of justice. Specifically, we identify and lament the follow- 
ing actions which have occurred: 

L The passage of a Crime Bill (H.B. 16196) which . . . permits the 
preventative detention of persons labeled as "high risk" to the society 
or national defense before a trial, innocent or guilty; 
. . . permits unannounced forcible entry into private homes by the 
police, with or without a warrant, where notice of search "may" result 
in disposal of evidence; 

. . . denies the right of any person to resist illegal arrest, even if that 
illegal arrest were administered with brutal force. 

2. The passage of S30 which 

. . . severely limits the protection provided by the Fifth Amendment 

by forcing reluctant witnesses to testify with the possibility of jail 

sentence for failure to testify and possibility of evidence so delivered 

leading to prosecution; 

. . . reverses the Supreme Court ruling which permits defendants access 

to material obtained in illegal wiretaps; 

. . . permits the introduction of illegally obtained material as evidence 

in court after a period of five years; 

. . . creates a new and vaguely defined category of "Dangerous Special 

Offender" which would include persons convicted of taking part in a 

conspiracy, liable to jail sentences up to thirty years; 

. . . permits the government to appeal the sentence of any "Dangerous 

Special Offender" whose sentence was not stiff enough. 

3. As recently revealed, the extensive surveillance of civilians by the U. S. 
Army. 



56 Minutes 1971 

In the weeks immediately ahead we see opportunity and need for individuals 
and churches to act positively in regard to the following matters: 

1. Repeal of the Emergency Detention Act. This 1950 law remains, giving 
the executive branch of government virtually unlimited powers to round 
up dissidents and place them in concentration camps for unlimited 
periods of time — all without due process and in the absence of any 
meaningful judicial review. 

2. Ratification of the United Nations Convention on the Prevention and 
Punishment of the Crime of Genocide. This convention was adopted by 
the United Nations in 1948 and has been ratified by seventy-five coun- 
tries. Ratification by the Congress of the United States would be a 
contribution to world law. It would place our government among those 
who by treaty condemn acts which the Convention defines as genocide. 

We therefore RESOLVE: To inform our fellow Christians and citizens of the 
need for Congressional action to repeal the Emergency Detention Act and ratify 
the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide; 

We further RESOLVE: That this Conference will send letters expressing our 
concern on these matters to all Congressmen from Massachusetts; 

And we further RESOLVE: To direct our concerns as individuals to appro- 
priate governmental officials. 

It was moved and 

VOTED: That the 2 resolutions concerning the war in Viet Nam be taken up 
at this time. 

It was moved and 

VOTED: That Mrs. Louise Bruyn be given the privilege of the floor to speak to 
the Meeting. 

Mrs. Louise Bruyn, who recently walked from Newton, Massachusetts to Wash- 
ington, D. C. to express her disapproval of the War, spoke eloquently of her 
concern. 

It was moved and 

VOTED: To support the following resolution proposed by a group of Western 
Area Christians: 



STOP THE KILLING 

As a result of a workshop experience on White Racism, we, a group of Western 
Area Christians feel morally obligated to bring to the Massachusetts Conference 
of the United Church of Christ, our anguish with the obvious racism in the 
Indochina War, and the suffering that it has inflicted upon untold fellow human 
beings. 

Our Christian concern transcends self interest and even national interest and 
causes us to cry out "STOP THE KILLING." 



1971 Minutes 57 

Therefore, we call upon the delegates of this Annual Meeting to: 

1. Make known to our elected representatives that we have had enough of mili- 
tary ferocity and moral cynicism, that the days of pseudo-bargaining have 
extended too long, that it is time to get out of Southeast Asia, doing what 
we can, not to sustain unreal and impossible "commitments," not to protect 
our injured vanity, but to repair the damage done to a suffering people. 

2. Support passage of Senator Brooke's resolution for a Senate inquiry on how to 
end American involvement as well as Senator Hartke's resolution demanding 
prompt withdrawal from Indochina. 

3. Strengthen secular and interfaith organizations struggling to end the war and 
revise national priorities. 

In view of the above vote, the other resolution on the War in Viet Nam was 
not pursued. 

The Moderator then turned the gavel over to the new Moderator, Mr. James 
Bateman. The Meeting gave a standing ovation to the Rev. Harold Fray, Jr., who 
had guided the deliberations through two Annual Meetings and two Recessed 
Meetings. 

The Rev. Avery D. Post, Minister and President of the Conference, gave a clos- 
ing statement. He paid tribute to Mr. Fray for the remarkable leadership which 
he had given. He then spoke with appreciation of the ministry of the Rev. Lillian 
Gregory who is leaving the Conference staff at the end of August. 

Noting that an Annual Meeting requires the sustained and committed work of 
scores of Conference officers, committee members and staff, he expressed particular 
gratitude for the dedicated work of the Rev. Emil C. Beck, Vice President for 
Administration and Secretary, in directing the development of the setting for the 
meeting and in attending to countless details required for its success. 

The Business Committee presented two resolutions of appreciation. It was 
moved and 

VOTED: That: recognizing the vast and ofttimes thankless efforts that are re- 
quired to provide for our Conference Meetings, for our comfort and well-being, 
and in appreciation for the number of man-hours expended voluntarily by count- 
less persons. 

Be it RESOLVED that: The 172nd Annual Meeting of the Massachusetts Con- 
ference of the United Church of Christ express to the churches of the Fitchburg 
area, their people and pastors and to the Rev. Donald Overlock as Chairman our 
sincere appreciation, and that appropriate communications be sent in behalf of 
this meeting. 

It was moved and 

VOTED: That: The 172nd Annual Meeting of the Massachusetts Conference of 
the United Church of Christ has been most fortunate in having in the role of 
Moderator a man who has a sense of humor and has given of himself more than 
has been usually demanded or required. He has assumed leadership, the kind and 



58 Minutes 1971 

quality of which has carried us through times of important and far-reaching 
crises in our Conference, and for which there are few adequate means of express- 
ing our gratitude and appreciation. 

Be it RESOLVED, therefore, that the 172nd Annual Meeting of the Massachu- 
setts Conference of the United Church of Christ rise in standing ovation as an 
expression of our deep appreciation to retiring Moderator, Harold R. Fray, Jr., 
and that the Secretary of the Conference appropriately communicate these senti- 
ments to Mr. Fray as the unanimous feelings of this assembly. 

The Fall Meeting of the Conference will be held on Saturday, November 13, 
1971, at Brockton High School, Brockton, Massachusetts. 



The Meeting adjourned at 4:00 P.M.

REPORT OF THE CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS 

Since the Annual Meeting in Amherst last June, the constitutional year of our 
Conference has contained its usual development of crises and uncertainties, of 
discussion and debate, of proposals and propositions, and a few solutions. 

For those who believe that business can be conducted neatly and rapidly, that 
authority can be effectively applied to accomplish it, this has been a frustrating 
year. 

For those who believe in sensitive responses, emotional as ^vell as rational, this 
has been a banner year. 

A special committee to study By-Law revisions met and reported, and two re- 
cessed portions of the 1970 Annual Meeting reviewed the results. Now we will 
vote on the proposals. It is probably safe to say that revision of ByT.aws is an 
unending task. These will hardly be the last changes, but only part of an ongoing 
process. 

During 1970 and into 1971, the ad hoc Policy Committee made up of standing 
committee chairmen met and began to determine its tasks and its identity. It has 
made valuable contributions to the Board of Directors in the area of program 
priority and the relationship of committees. 

The Southeast Area Search Committee was formed, performed, and recommend- 
ed a candidate. That candidate is now the newest member of our staff. Rev. Paul 
Sinn, the Southeast Area Minister. 

An MBA Search Committee is now at work to find the successor to Rev. Allen 
Hackett who retires in the fall. 

In the formation of these groups, the Board of Directors has tried to provide a 
leadership style that is responsive and democratic in an attempt to involve broad- 
er numbers of persons in decision making processes. In the two recessed meetings 
in Ayer, the "open" approach on delicate issues was evidenced. 

The Board's agenda continues to be generated from issues created out of our 
imperfect society. The issue of staff and the "delivery system", the issue of OCWM 
commitments, the issue of peace, and particularly the issue of trust between 
leadership and constituency have all threaded their way throughout our year. 

But the big word that creeps along now is "PRIORITY." We really do not 
understand its full meaning. We are working on it. We have been trying to 
define it, to contain it, to reduce it to the practical. More will be heard about it. 

There are members of the Board who travel faithfully each month to sit for 
six to eight hours trying to distill wisdom without destroying enthusiasm. I can 
truthfully report to you that these persons have formed the most loyal, conscien- 
tious group that it has ever been my pleasure to serve. 

Although still controversial, most Board members feel that a most significant 
work was accomplished in the area of professional staffing. We remain solidly 
behind our President, Avery Post, in the pursuit of better ways to provide leader- 
ship to the Conference. We are impressed by the direction and movement in the 
office of the assistant for program development now held by George Thomas. You 
will be happy also to know that our administrative system at 14 Beacon is being 
overhauled with new procedures in the making under the supervision of our Vice 
President, Emil Beck. 

In the past weeks, we have become more involved with the issue of peace. We 
remain solidly behind Avery Post in his continuing efforts to work for peace. We 
support him in his cooperative endeavors with other ecclesiastical bodies and 
organizations. We are impressed with his sincerity and wisdom. We are grateful 
that it is this faithful servant of Christ which we are privileged to have in our 
midst. 

These have been exciting years to serve in our Conference. Before these two days 
have passed, we will all have the opportunity to renew our affection for this world 
and its people, for it is in this manner that we can remain faithful to our Lord, 
anci, even in failing, find quiet assurance of His control, and hope for the future. 

Respectfully submitted,

United Church of Christ 

We have examined the accompanying statement of assets 
ind liabilities resulting from cash transactions of Massachusetts 
Conference of the United Church of Christ (a non-profit organization) 
4is of December 31, 1970, and the related statements of revenue and 
expenditures and changes in fund balances for the year then ended. 
Dur examination was made in accordance with generally accepted 
auditing standards, and accordingly included such tests of the 
accounting records and such auditing procedures as we considered 
necessary in the circumstances. 

In our opinion, the financial statements referred to 
above present fairly the assets and liabilities of Massachusetts 
Conference of the United Church of Christ at December 31, 1970, 
arising from cash transactions, the revenue collected and 
expenditures by it and the changes in fund balances during the 
year then ended, on a basis consistent with that of the preceding 
year.

AUDITORS' REPORT ON SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION 



Massachusetts Conference of the 
United Church of Christ 



The basic financial statements of the Massachusetts 
Conference of the United Church of Christ for the year ended 
December 31, 1970, and our report thereon, are presented in the 
preceding section of this report. Our examination was made 
primarily for the purpose of formulating an overall opinion on 
those financial statements. The supplemental statements presented 
hereinafter, although not considered necessary for a fair presenta- 
tion of assets and liabilities arising from cash transactions, 
revenue collected and expenditures and changes in fund balances, 
are presented as supplementary information and have been subjected 
to the audit procedures applied in the examination of the basic 
financial statements. In our opinion, the supplemental statements 
are fairly stated in all material respects in relation to the basic 
financial statements taken as a whole.

BEQUESTS 

Bequests to the Massachusetts Conference of the United Church of Christ 
are used to assist needy churches and to promote the work and interests of the 
Conference in the State. Bequests may be made permanent funds by the 
donors, and the Conference restricted to the use of the income only. The 
general practice of the Conference is to divide unrestricted legacies into three 
equal parts. One part is used for current work, one part is added to the Per- 
manent Legacy Fund, the income only of which is used for general purposes; 
and the third part is added to a Contingent Fund, the principal of which may 
be drawn upon to care for special undertakings or to avoid a deficit. 

If, on the other hand, a testator specifies that his entire legacy is to be ex- 
pended as current income and that he does not wish it invested in whole or in 
part, these directions will be carefully observed. 

Bequests to the Massachusetts Conference of the United Church of Christ 
pay no Massachusetts inheritance tax. 

FORM OF BEQUEST 

I give to the Massachusetts Conference of the United Church of Christ 
incorporated under the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, the 
sum of Dollars.

CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH UNION OF BOSTON 
AND VICINITY 

President, Rev. Avery D. Post, 14 Beacon Street, Boston 02108 

Treasurer, Mr. W. Elliott Pratt, Jr., 14 Beacon Street, Boston 02108 

Secretary, Mr. Douglas L. Ley, 10 State Street, Boston 02109 

Composed of the U.C.C. and Congregational churches of the Metropolitan Boston 
Association, its original object was "to promote religion and morality in Boston and 
the outlying cities and towns, by establishment and support of evangelical Con- 
gregational Churches, Sunday-schools, and Missions." Since 1939 it has had a 
Board of Directors interlocking with the officers of the Massachusetts Conference. 
Its promotional functions have been turned over to the Conference. Its Board of 
Directors administers the permanent funds of which it is Trustee. 

CITY MISSIONARY SOCIETY, BOSTON, INC. 1820 

Chairman of Board of Directors — Elliott V. Grabill, Esq. 
Clerk — Rev. Robert P. Noble 
President — Rev. Clyde H. Miller, Jr. 
Treasurer — Mr. Russell H. Palmer 

Staff: Full time 20; part time (including summer program) 80 

The City Missionary Society has been the social service arm of Congregational 
churches in Metropolitan Boston since 1816. It now has an important place in the 
life of the Metropolitan Boston Association, whose constitution refers to the Society 
as "a recognized instrumentality of the Metropolitan Boston Association." Commit- 
tees of Metropolitan Boston Association and of City Missionary Society are working 
together on several programs. 

CMS holds membership in the American Camping Association, Family Service 
Section of the Greater Boston Community Council, Massachusetts Conference on 
Human Rights, Massachusetts Conference on Social Welfare, National Association 
of Housing and Redevelopment Olficials, National Association of Non-Profit Hous- 
ing Organizers, Pregnancy Counselling Service, Religious Research Association, 
Citizens Housing and Planning Association, and Greater Boston Community De- 
velopment. 

The former Commission on Housing and Education of the Metropolitan Boston 
Association is now a program arm of CMS. The program in Housing has as its task 
working within the framework of the housing system at the metropolitan level in 
order to increase the delivery of housing to low and moderate income families. The 
program in Education has focused on assisting community groups that wish to im- 
prove public education or provide alternatives to it. Consequently, much of the 
program has been devoted to discovering resources that may be useful to such groups. 

Mission Advance funds, now flowing through CMS as the mission arm of the 
Metropolitan Boston Association, will be budgeted by the CMS-MBA Projects Com- 
mittee. The principal use of these funds will be in the area of Community Devel- 
opment. Work has already begun in Mattapan and Somerville. 

The program of Community Development in Mattapan had begun in the belief 
that resources available to CMS can be harnessed to enable that community to 
become viable for its residents. Staff has begun to explore the possible resources 
that can be directed to the economic enhancement of the area. The program in 
Somerville had begun in the belief that the combined efforts of public and private 



1971 81 

groups can substantially effect systematic change, particularly in the area of public 
education. 

Seven social workers are assigned to various communities in the inner city, and 
they -work closely Avith public and private social agencies. The Society's social work- 
ers are aided by volunteers who engage in numerous useful services of visitation, 
teaching, etc. A Voluntary Case-Aide Program has 27 dedicated volunteers from 
Roxbury and from several suburban communities, assisting relocated multi-problem 
families. 

The Society's summer camping programs provide meaningful activity for children 
of all ages and for adult members of low-income families. Camps Andover-Waldron 
on Lake Winnisquam, in Meredith, N. H. are open to children 9-16 years of age. 
They provide opportunities for interracial and intercultural contacts in a Christian 
setting. Family Camps and weekend retreats for church groups are held under spon- 
sorship of CMS at Farrington Memorial property in Lincoln, Mass. 

CMS receives no income from United Funds. Principal support comes from United 
Church of Christ Churches in Metropolitan Boston, from interested individuals and 
trust funds, and from endowment. Much aid in relief comes from the Howard 
Benevolent Society. Many churches and Sunday schools regularly aid with collec- 
tions of clothing, furniture, Christmas gifts, and special funds. 

The Society's income in the fiscal year ending October 31, 1970 was $299,293 
(this amount included legacies of $7,140). Churches in the Metropolitan Boston 
Association and other churches in Massachusetts contributed $47,767. The operating 
deficit in 1970 was $90,000. In 1971, both the budget and staff will be expanded 
as CMS continues to implement the mission to Boston with Mission: Advance! funds. 

City Missionary Society was incorporated in 1820. Its corporate members are 
elected at the annual meeting, held in November each year. Every supporting con- 
gregation is entitled to nominate a representative to serve a three year term on 
the corporation. 



THE CONGREGATIONAL LIBRARY 
OF THE AMERICAN CONGREGATIONAL ASSOCIATION 

(Proprietor of the Congregational House) 
Room 207, 14 Beacon Street, Boston 

The Congregational Library was founded in 1853 to gather and preserve books, 
pamphlets and manuscripts on Congregational history and to promote the general 
interests of Congregational churches. In addition to the historic collection on Con- 
gregationalism the library has important collections of Bibles, in a variety of lan- 
guages and versions, hymnals, and histories of local churches and towns. New books, 
with the exception of fiction, are purchased every week in the fields of: preaching 
and pastoral work, philosophy and theology. Biblical commentary, church history, 
religious education, worship and devotion, missions and the ecumenical movement, 
church arts and architecture, denominations, sects, and world religions, social prob- 
lems, and biography. 

These resources, approximately 200,000 books and pamphlets, are available to 
ministers, lay preachers, church officers, church school teachers, students, and all 
interested in reading for enrichment of life. Books are mailed without charge to 
all parts of the United States. A letter or postcard giving author, title or the subject 
of books desired, will receive prompt attention. The Library is open for study and 
research Monday through Friday, 9-5. A copy of a leaflet, "The Congregational Li- 
brary" and the Bulletin will be sent to those writing' for further information.

GRANTS FROM THE MASSACHUSETTS CONFERENCE 
OF THE UNITED CHURCH OF CHRIST 

Grants for the aid of churches and certain other types of work are made by 
the Conference through the Board of Directors, following recommendation by 
the Finance Committee in consultation with the Conference staff and com- 
mittees concerned. 

Grants are made to local churches (to strengthen the ministry of the 
church) ; to hospital chaplaincies; to the Ecumenical Center in Roxbury; to 
other denominational projects in Massachusetts; campus ministries; and other 
work as need arises. 

Requests for grants come to the Finance Committee through the member 
of the Conference executive staff who is particularly concerned either with the 
area or the type of work or through a Conference Committee. 

Grants to local churches are made under the following circumstances: 

1. Where a community is too far from a church to benefit from its privileges, 
the Conference encourages the establishment of regular religiouj services, and, 
if possible, the organization of a church, or a branch of a neighboring church. 

2. Applications by a church for financial aid should be made by the vote of 
the church, and upon forms furnished by the Conference, and should have the 
approval of the Advisory or Grants Committee of the local association of 
churches. 

3. Churches applying for aid should show that they have met in full all 
financial obligations to their ministers and are doing their utmost toward 
self-support. 

4. In granting aid, different amounts will be appropriated according to the 
necessity, importance, and prospects of each field. 

5. Every church aided by the Conference should consult the Area Minister 
or President before making arrangements for pastoral service. 

6. When the service of the minister or other worker, for whose supp.ort an 
appropriation is made, shall terminate, the appropriation shall lapse, except 
under special circumstances. 

The Conference advocates adequate compensation for every minister and 
church worker and has approved a salary scale. 

The Conference favors hearty co-operation with other denominations, the 
avoidance of overlapping and competing work, and the consolidation or federa- 
tion of churches of different denominations in over-churched communities. 

All grants coincide with the calendar year. Applications must be processed 
through the association grants committee and presented through the area 
minister by May 1. 



STATISTICAL TABLES 

EXPLANATORY 

The tables which follow comprise: 

1. The statistics of the churches, giving the ministers, church membership, additions, 
removals, Sunday school membership, and the amount of benevolences and expenses. 
These tables, in accordance with the vote of the Conference in 1887, are made to con- 
form to those in the National Year Book; 

2. The Associations of Churches, with the names of officers; 

3. The Ministerial Standing, giving the date of ordination of each minister, the date 
of membership in the Association, the residence and his "employment"; 

4. The Ministerial Record, containing lists of ordinations and deaths. 

The tables of the first part contain the names of all the Congregational and United 
Church of Christ churches in Massachusetts, the towns and cities being arranged al- 
phabetically. This is not a postal guide. It is a listing of the location of the church for 
the convenience of persons seeking to find the church. The first name in the list of 
churches is the name of the town or city in which the church is located; then follows 
the name of the church and directions for locating the church. 

Church members are reported as numbered January 1, 1971. Admissions and re- 
movals cover the year 1970. "Sunday School" includes total membership of officers, 
teachers and scholars January 1, 1971, or when the school is in operation (if not at that 
date), covering "branch schools." "mission schools," and "home departments," so 
far as maintained by the reporting church. 

The months and days in the dates of the organization of churches are omitted. They 
will be found in the publications of 1873, those of churches since organized being given 
in the "Minutes" of each year. Months and days in the dates of ordination of Congre- 
gational and United Church of Christ ministers may be found in the lists of the local 
associations which follow the tables. 

Reference marks used throughout Schedules: 

A — Figures are for U.C.C. members only

ports, but has Congregational Christian standing only 

Y — Pastor serves more than one church. (See list of yoked churches in Conference 
Summary) 

CM — Campus Ministry 

LO — Limited Ordination 

NK — Pastor's denomination is not known 

PT — Part time 

n — Church made no report and statistics are from previous Year Book, except

* — Schedule I. Congregational Christian Churches which have not voted or which 

have voted to abstain from voting at the time of submitting the Conference 
Report 

# — Schedule 11. Congregational Christian Churches which have voted not to be 

part of the U.C.C. at the time of submitting the Conference Report 
Amount of "Local Expenses" includes all salaries, operating expenses and repairs 
for church, Sunday school, choir and parish. 

In reporting the statistics of federated churches, figures given pertaining to member- 
ship and gifts on the apportionment are for the Congregational or United Church of 
Christ churches within the federated churches. Figures pertaining to Church School 
enrollment, contributions to home expenses are usually for all the churches grouped 
together in the federated church. 

Note: 

Pastoral changes between the time year book data was sent to the national office 
and the time of going to press for our Conference Year Book are not reflected in the 
following schedules, but are reflected in the association lists and the alphabetical lists.

both branches of the Congregational body. Aids the needy widows

CONDITIONAL GIFTS 



The Conference receives conditional gifts, subject to annuity 
agreements with the donors, and encourages this method for 
those who wish any part of their property to be applied to our 
work after their death, and desire an assured income from their 
property for themselves, or for others whom they may designate 
as beneficiaries, as long as they live. Correspondence with the 
Treasurer concerning such annuity agreements is inyited.

TRUST FUNDS 



The Massachusetts Congregational Fund, organized during the 
year 1945 under the auspices of the Conference, is now admin- 
istering trust funds of Congregational churches and organizations 
in Massachusetts aggregating $12,337,240 including the funds 
of the Couterence. 

It is not an easy matter for church or parish committees, often 
made up of those without broad experience in investment matters, 
to guard the safety of church trust funds. We welcome inquiries 
from Congregational churches in Massachusetts relative to caring 
for their trust or endowment funds.
